of the president talking about a conversations you had with dr. martin luther king and of course tomorrow is mlk day. it couldn't be a more appropriate day. i'm sure you would feel for barack obama's second inauguration. but in those conversations with martin luther king, he felt there may be an african-american president, the first black president in the next 40 years. you didn't think it would happen in your lifetime. >> it's -- that's true. i'm so excited. i'm so happy about my country. that we are growing up. >> and how do you think the president -- >> we are moving beyond ignorance. >> right. how do you think. >> sorry? >> how do you think he's done, president obama, in the first term and what would you like him to do more of in his second term? >> well, i think he's done the best he could. i think that there were number of people who as soon as he was elected put their feet down in -- their heels in to the earth and said, no matter what he does, no matter how good he is, i will not support him. i will resist his attempts to make our country better. i think that he was -- i think he was sur

to the collection action sound bite the you have that and then get to martin luther king thoughts in a minute. run that first one, the collective action comment. >> we always understood when times change, so must we. if i dellty to the founding principles requires new response to new challenges. preserving our individual freedom ultimately requires collective action. no single person can train all the math and science teachers we'll need to equip our children for the future, or build the roads and networks and research labs that will bring new jobs and businesses to our shores. now, more than ever, we must do these things together. as one nation. and one people. >> dana: okay. if you just listen to that you think we'll all work together. if you are reading between the lines, greg, what did you hear in that? >> greg: who uses the word "collective action" anymore other than ows protesters and exbombers with pony tails now tenure academic campuses? the only collective action that works are garbage men. it's, it reminds you, that you can't take the teachers lounge out of the grad opportunity. it will
of martin luther king and abraham lincoln. this is martin luther king day. we celebrate that, as well. the second time a president has been inaugurated on martin luther king day. about 800,000 people will be there on the mall. a little bit smaller than four years ago. but no less buoyant. a lot of smiling faces out there. we hear the choir of p.s. 22 in staten island. >> they are the largest choir in staten island. and i believe they are fifth graders. let's listen to them for a second. ♪ don't pay no mind to the feeling, until you feel it ♪ >> we love the caps. we love the swaying this morning. we've been thinking to ourselves, a second inauguration is typically not as -- not as surprising as the first inauguration. but nonetheless, it rededicates this country to big ideas. and the person who has to do it in his speech, walking up to the podium, is the president. we saw the first family walking in to st. john's church earlier this morning. >> they're at that worship service right now. there they are, right there, just before they walked into st. john's episcopal church, across th
going to say? it's going to be 50 years this year of the "i have a dream speech" of martin luther king. 150 years of the emancipation proclamation. they have this historic african-american president. once again he said barack hussein obama today. using his middle name like he did the first time around. you just have to be touched by it. the story of barack obama is like, you know, booker t. washington or martin luther king. they are stories that constantly resonate. there's a lot of cynicism towards this president, but we need to also just be so pleased that he's doing such a great professional job for our country. >> pelley: doug, thank you very much. let's switch back over to the white house back to major garrett on the lawn there. so we are entering the first few minutes of the second term, major. >> indeed we are. i think it was the buoyancy of the presidency that struck me scott. i will tell you talking to very senior advisors here at the white house about what is different. this is a second term. for the president when he ran in 2008 and won and took the inaugural oath in 2009 he
't believe that now there's a monument to martin luther king on the mall. and that an african-american president is being -- is being elected and for her, she said the most humble tone, these were dreams that were dangerous to even articulate when i was growing up and now i'm seeing america in that way. this is the beauty of this day. you have the president being inaugurated at a time that coincides with martin luther king's birthday. and it's a good reminder that as tough as things seem, bob, as difficult and challenging of a moment we should in american history, this idea that we are a country that is constantly evolving and changing and the president has a chance to make some incredible history now. immigration reform i think is going to be strong. i think he can find a note of unity on gun safety. here you have a nation where over 80% of gun owners believe in things like universal background checks and closing secondary markets. this gives the president the arc of the moral universe and bending it to justice and showing that this country is strong at the core. >> mr. mayor
it is amazing that he is taking the oath of office on the bible of lincoln and martin luther king, and martin luther king had this to say, and if i can quote him -- it is a simple matter of justice with the task of raising the negro from backwardness should also be rescuing the forgotten a white sport. a bill of rights for the disadvantaged, marked the rise of a new era in which the full resources of society would be used to attack the tenacious poverty which so paradoxical exists here. >> that is tim from gainesville, florida. he mentioned the lincoln and bible and the king bible. the lincoln bible itself, according to the library of can -- of congress, is bound in burgundy velvet with a gold washed white metal rim around the three outside edges of the covers. all edges are heavily guilt. in the center of -- of the top cover, there is a shield of cold wash with the words "holy bible" etched into it. the king bible was dr. king's trebling bible. an avid reader, dr. king traveled with a selection of books that included this bible the president will be using. it was used for inspiration and pre
inauguration parade and the speech. it happens to be on a federal holiday, martin luther king day and now we're getting a lot of sbim mags that the president is going to have his hand on martin luther king's bible. he's doing the whole weekend before the inaugural, it's all about martin luther king in service. and med gar evers widow is doing the convocation before the inaugural speech. so it's a big martin luther king day. he'll be our second president as of sunday. second term. >> i understand you met with president obama recently? >> a group of historians including doris, we meet periodically, a few times now at the white house and have what we call a historians dinner and talk to president obama. they're off the record, but i think it's fair to say he likes talking about presidential history and likes hearing about abraham lincoln. he's from illinois and really cares about lincoln. he's aware of lincoln's famous second inaugural. but also theodore roosevelt, dwight eisenhower, ronald reagan. i look at it more as a form of relaxation for the president when we get to meet him. he gets to c
and moderation. >> it is so significant that today is also martin luther king day. this is our country. we voted hinton. we can vote him out. we're the ones to have the power. oftentimes we forget that we are the ones who have the power. we have to make sure that they carry out our wishes and our hopes. that is why i am here. it is a good feeling >> i'm originally from virginia. i had to be here. there's no way i could, i took off. had to be here. >> we were kind of far back but i like to take pictures of the capital. and then of the screen. the saving of us here. it is a good way to remember. >> anything that left a real big impression? >>beyonce, that was kind of cool. >>that was pretty cool. >> a lot of people were really excited. >> a great time here at the national mall. >> also on the streets in washington d.c.. >>beyonce a real big hit. >> [applause] >> [inaudible] >>the democratic leader of the house of reps. >> [muysic]music] >> your having a problem with his audio. when they get that straightened out we will be going back to him. >>paul lisnek. >> thank you for joining
time the president had his inauguration on the celebration of martin luther king, jr. and it's actually a ceremonial event. the 20th amendment to the constitution mandates that newly elected mandates take place on january 20th and several times that happened on the sunday. and followed by the pomp and pageantry on the following monday. >> both president obama and vice president biden took their official oaths of office why yesterday. >> i barack hussein obama swear -- >> supreme court justice john roberts swore in the first family. justice sotomayor did the honor at the vice president's residence at the united states naval observe tore in washington. >> and both families attended a church service at the episcopal church directly opposite the white house. moments ago the limousine carrying the obamas and the bidens arrived at the capital after the 12 block trip up pennsylvania avenue from the white house. >> joining us, our news hour regular column younist mark shields and new york sometimes columnist mark brooks. >> big day, gwen. it is a big day. it lacks the inherent drama and expense
in the past. particularly the one for which the man was honored today dr. martin luther king was so famous and civil rights. in fact civil rights for gays was a centerpiece of the president wants speech today. he said more about it than any president in a presidential address. while is he preoccupied with social justice that's in part because these other issues that you spoke about, invog gore rating the economy which has had such anemic recovery and dealing with the burgeoning deficits and exploding national debt are issues that don't particularly interest him. i'm not sure that the economy ever has. you may recall when he first took office he got through congress this stimulus package which was kind of a grab bag of spending of all kinds favored by members of his party in congress and then he basically abandoned the issue to take on something that i think appealed to him much more, that being the reform of the healthcare system. known as obama care which was adding another entitlement. >> >> bill: let me stop you there you would agree with me that president obama is a i have intelligent
honoring the birthday of dr. martin luther king jr. today on that holiday swearing in the nation's first african-american president, not for the first time, but for the second time, it marks a different kind of milestone. because in winning hi second term, let it be known that this was not a fluke. our country did not just pick our first black president by luck because he was just the democratic who happened to benefit from a national recoil and backlash against what was widely viewed as a rather disastrous republican presidency that preceded him. the country did not just choose barack hussein obama to be president. the country chose barack hussein obama to be president twice. we picked him again a second time after watching him in action for four years, and then having a very good chance to pick a new guy instead. this will never happen again. barack obama will never run for office again. and we do not know who will succeed him as president in four years. but the honoring of the office of presidency today, again, entrusted to him, will forever be a day writ large, writ large by us by ou
of the united states on martin luther king day is giving it that much time. >> vice president biden is speaking at the commander-in-chief ball. >> they know who you are. they know what you've done. 1.7, 1.7 million of you have walked across the scorching sands of iraq or been in those god for saken mountains and plains of afghanistan. many of you just haven't served one tour. you have served two, three, four, five, the last time of the 23 or four times i've been in afghanistan and iraq, i was flying into bagram in a c-17. i went into the cockpit. the load master was there and i said, how many of you is this your first tour? nobody raised their hand. i said second tour. one. third tour. two. fourth, one. fifth, two. ladies and gentlemen, we have never, never, never in the history of america asked so much of a generation. and you have met it with incredible pride. the joint chiefs of staff has prepared you in a way that always sort of takes my breath away every time i see you in theater. one of the great honors of my life has been to visit many of you when you were serving abroad from the mountai
, but in the future. interesting that this inauguration falls on martin luther king's birthday. and 50 years ago, in 1963, that king gave his speech on the steps of the lincoln memorial. i am sure there is going to be some connection to that in the process. this is a fulfillment of what king had looked for. but what is left, what would expect to be done, i am sure that is part of the president's thinking. it is a little strange, also, for those who work for the federal government in washington did we always get -- washington. we always get king's birthday off. the question is, why didn't we have the inauguration on sunday? we've never had a formal outdoor ceremony on sunday. the sense is that the president should be sworn in privately on the white house on sunday. it is a wonderful coincidence that obama's is being held on martin luther king's birthday. >> we have had many speakers come this week and talk about the current polarization of congress. what you think about the polarization of congress? how can we bridge the gap going forward? >> is definitely polarized. the two political parties hav
second term. today is the national day of service. it was founded as a day to celebrate dr. martin luther king jr. and to promote volunteerism. coming up later this hour, we'll tag along with vice president joe biden and jill biden on their event. and next hour, we'll see what the president and first lady are up to, as well. we have already been out here for hours this morning. but there is much more to come. we have reporters bringing you all the angles of the inauguration. our shannon travis is at the national day of service event where vice president biden is expected shortly. good morning to you. you're inside that big tent where organizers are meeting with the volunteers who will take part in today's communitywide events. do you know what we can expect the vice president to be tackling this morning? >> reporter: we can expect for the vice president to basically be joining in with this national call to service that hundreds of thousands potentially of other americans across the country will be participating in, as well. this is a call to action for all 50 states. again, organizers tel
. martin luther king holiday, put in place by president reagan. bill clinton was the first to have his admiration for on an mlk day, president clinton making a reference to dr. king during his speech. >> 34 years ago, the man whose life we celebrate today spoke to us down there at the other end of the small -- this mall in words that move the conscious of the nation. like a profit of old, he told of his dream that one day, america would rise up and treat all of its citizens as equals. before the law and in the hearts. martin luther king's dream was the american dream. his quest is our request. the ceaseless striving to live out our troops greeted. our history has been built on such dreams and laborers. and, by our dreams and laborers, we will redeem the promise of america in the 21st century. >> from 1997, to a live view of washington, d.c. to the area around where the presidential parade will take place. reference to dr. martin luther king. one could suspect the president will make an even longer reference tomorrow. >> i would think so. tomorrow is particularly historic, in civil righ
presidential inauguration. tomorrow's public ceremony holds the fitting honor of taking place on martin luther king jr. day at 11:5 eastern, america's first african-american president will take the oath of office and usher in his second term. joining me now is u.s. congressman and civil rights legend john lewis. representative lewis, so glad to have you here on this momentous day. thanks for joining us. >> thank you for having me today. >> well, when you think back on all the years of struggle, the lives lost, the blood shed, what does it mean to you to see the nation's fist african-american president take the oath of office for a second time? >> well, it mean ags great deal to me and to our nation. it is almost unreal, almost unbelievable through all of the struggle, through all of the suffering and pain, through the beatings, duress, to jailing, it is historic. as president lyndon johnson said almost 48 years ago when he spoke to the congress, he said it's like history and faith coming together. he was talking about the need to pass a voting rights act. just think, less than 50 years ago man
, martin luther king jr. we will pause to remember dr. king's birthday and i'd like to bring in andrew young the third, former civil rights leader and ambassador andrew young. good to see you, sir. >> hey, craig, how are you doing? >> great. your father is a long time friend and confidant of reverend king. what have you learned from your father, and also, his generation as well? >> you know, i think that it is very important that we as americans today give each other a faith-saving way out, and that is one thing that my father was adamant about throughout his life is that when you have an opponent and have indifferences about a subject, that you give your opponent a way out. to keep his dignity and that is how you create change, and that is what dr. king and my father and dr. lowrie and others did during the civil rights movement when they were fighting bigotry. and unfortunately, that is what the president obama is going to to have to learn to do with the go gop. >> what are your thoughts as we get ready to see president obama sworn in for a second time tomorrow? >> i think that it's
, the reenactment of the oath on two bibles. one is martin luther king jr.'s traveling bible. that's significant being -- for all of the historic reasons, also his official day today and also the lincoln bible. you've got all of those great notes from history. also looking forward as to the real accomplishments he hopes in the first year to 18 months. after that, it does become a lame duck situation. right now, it's about a lot more hope than speaking about the end of the second term. >> andrea, since we're talking to you all morning, i'm wondering if your camera can pull all the way back and give us some perspective on how tightly we are focused in and how long a shot it is and exactly where you are in relation to the -- wow. this is like where is waldo. keep your eye on andrea mitchell. there she is. you thought she had good seats. she's up in section 311a. >> some of those will cost you a couple hundred dollars. andrea mitchell, thank you. we'll be relying on you for the sense of the crowd as we go along. we want a preview of this. the motorcade route, the parade route after the formality of
in to be -- for a second term, wolf. >> tomorrow, he'll have dr. martin luther king, jr. bible and abraham lincoln's bible at the official public ceremony at the white house. you're looking at live pictures. we're about to go into the blue room of the united states. the president of the united states and his family, they will be there together with the chief justice of the united states, john roberts. he will administer the oath as we get ready for this historic moment. >> please raise your right hand and repeat after me. i barack hussein obama do solemnly swear. >> i barack hussein obama, do solemnly swear. >> that i will faithfully execute. >> that i will faithfully execute. >> the office of president of the united states. >> the office of president of the united states. >> and will, to the best of moo i ability. >> and will, to the best of my ability. >> preserve, protect and defend. >> preserve, protect and defend. >> the constitution of the united states. >> the constitution of the united states. >> so help you god? >> so help me god. >> congratulations mr. president. >> thank you, mr. chief justice.
